Organize and Beautify Your Cabinets

New cabinets call for some organizing and beautification to make them look even more pretty and functional.  Right?
What a jumbled up mess I had going on in this cabinet!  I just threw things back into cabinets to get them off the counter tops.  The clutter was making me crazy!
I wanted to put some shelf paper down before I reloaded the cabinets.  I was a bit too inpatient for the top cabinets (clutter makes me coocoo), but I did wait for my new green Contact paper to arrived so I could paper the bottom ones before I filled them up again.  I found my perfect paper at Walmart HERE.
This is how the lower cabinets looked before I lined them with my pretty green paper.  Before this picture and the new paint, it actually had some old shelf liner on each shelf.  I peeled the old stuff off and then cleaned each shelf with Murphy's soap and water.  I let it dry for about 30 minutes then started papering!
So fresh and clean!  I really love it and I still cant get over the color being so perfect!  I lined every shelf in my kitchen with one roll of paper and I still have plenty left over for the new pantry when it gets built.  The rolls are 18" x 75'.  Plenty of paper for our small kitchen.
Originally when we built the corner cabinet we planned for a lazy susan so on to the internet I went to look for one.  Oh I found one alright!  Yeah! 18 inches of spinning goodness! Do you see there where it says its for corner cabinets?  Our giant sized corner cabinet needed a giant size lazy susan and I found one at The Container Store HERE.  It holds up to 150 pounds!  I dont think my spices weigh quite that much, but you never know!
This is very awesome!  All my spices on one lazy susan.  I just placed them close to the edge with the labels facing out so finding what I need is always easy.  If I had two of something, I just lined them up one after the other so I know I have extras.
I even have extras space to add more spices if I want to.  And although its hard to tell in these pictures, there is still left over room around the lazy susan to put more stuff in the cabinet too.  I pushed the lazy susan all the way back to the back of the cabinet and then just pulled it forward a bit so it could freely spin.  Lots of leftover room!
Tah Dah!  So much spinny organization I can barely stand it!  Oh and pretty shelf paper too! Hey, I think the inside of that door needs a chalkboard painted on it!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
